Had to run to town, so I hit the spots and here's what I got.

 

* MP brassard

* WW1 Victory Medal with France bar

* WW2 Pilots wings. They are marked sterling with nothing else. Any way to tell the maker?

* A cool little Sea Bee's badge. Anyone know about this? It heavy bronze, straight pin back. I don't think it's official, but interesting.

* WW2 Aircrew qualification badge. Now I need some bars to with it. No markings on back of it.

* WW2 Army Photographer patch.

Wing maker is Walter Lampl. There is at least one pretty informative thread on "Juarez wings" here on the forum.

Last Juarez I had were marked coin silver. From what I read about WL, a jewler from NY that most likely cast a Juarez Wing Badge and marked it his own.
